The North and South Korean leaders have embraced one another as they arrived in Pyongyang for their third summit together.

A smiling Kim Jong Un embraced South Korean president Moon Jae upon his arrival.

His Pyongyang trip makes him the third South Korean leader to visit North Korea’s capital for an inter-Korean summit.

Mr Moon is to meet Mr. Kim at least twice – later on, Tuesday and then again on Wednesday before returning home on Thursday.

The two have met to discuss further talks on denuclearisation and the prospect of officially ending the Korean War.

Hundreds of North Koreans wearing suits and traditional dresses also greeted Moon, carrying flowers and waving Korean peninsula and North Korean flags. A sign behind them reads: “We ardently welcome President Moon Jae-in’s visit to Pyongyang!”

Mr Moon said: “This summit would be very meaningful if it yielded a resumption of North Korea-US talks,”

“It’s very important for South and North Korea to meet frequently, and we are turning to a phase where we can meet anytime we want.”
